Watch Han Solo and Chewie meet in the new Solo

Get a sneaky peak at the new Star Wars movie Solo

The sequence has been teased in the trailers for the latest non-Skywalker entry in the Star Wars universe, and promises a different kind of action to the usual epic battles and lightsaber duels.

Lucasfilms and Walt Disney have now released a new 45-second commercial for the eagerly-anticipated "Star Wars" standalone film, Solo: A Star Wars Story, which you can have a look at below. It includes a voiceover of Han counting down before everything explodes and we see a ship, we assume containing our heroes, racing away in the nick of time.

Solo: A Star Wars Story hits theaters on May 25, 2018.

There's also a large focus on gambling in the spot, as we see money moving around a table a lot and Han apparently playing poker against somebody. But the new footage shows off some mannerisms that seem very Han Solo and should go a long way in helping fans think of Ehrenreich playing Solo. Solo looks at Chewie before showing him his hand. Since the cards are clearly in Aurebesh, the Star Wars language, it's hard to tell at a glance whether they're good or not.

Solo has been through a lot. The new spin-off dials back the clock to chronicle a young Han Solo (Alden Ehrenreich) from the years of 18-24 in his life as the young Smuggler proves himself as a criminal, meets Chewbacca, and also acquires the Millennium Falcon, which is owned by Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover) in the film. The Han and Chewbacca interaction feels right, even if other parts of it seem to still be trying to find the right footing.

As the new Star Wars film approaches, its PR machine is ramping up, churning out more and more promos for the film.
